How long does it take to order a bridal gown?

Depending on the designer anywhere between 4-8mths

Why so long?

The designers cater to the Australian, New Zealand and some the World market and they also like to give us options of colour and size. This in turn takes time for every gown to be made. For instance, one of our designers has up 2000 gowns a year in her collection and they are available to order in min. of 2 colours and up to 13 sizes. Quite amazing when you think about it.

I have short engagement, can I get a gown?

Absolutely. Our designers also offer express delivery options, for a small fee. Our Australian designers like Brisbane based designer Wendy Makin, can have a gown made within 2months for us. We also have an extensive range of gowns in-store available to purchase.

When should I order my gown?

It’s never too early. Your consultant will advise you at your appointment when to order by. Our in house tailor likes to fit you 2 months and 1 month prior to your wedding date, this can change with your lead time. We like your gown to arrive a month before your first fitting, this allows for any delay from the courier and less stress for our Bride’s.

How many gowns should I try on?

We advise Clients to research the Boutique’s that have the designers and style they like and narrow it down to 3, if you can. And book an appointment with each one, this will guarantee you will be assisted at each Boutique.


We have our in house tailor and she has over 30yrs experience in the fashion/bridal industry. We can do custom changes to your gown to personalise your look.

We are passionate about what we do and can’t wait to see you in the Studio.
